Orthodox Christian Network brings you news of events and people important to the life of the Orthodox Church around the world. OCN highlights media organizations that track these important stories.
Anthony J. Limberakis, MD, and National Commander of The Order of St. Andrew the Apostle, recently shared an email with their subscribers with the following link to American Minute with Bill Federer concerning The Great Pogrom of Istanbul.
Bill Federer reviews the history of the Constantinople from 330 AD to today and references The Great Riot of Istanbul as described by Ian Fleming: “hatred ran through the streets like lava,” and “a city gone mad.” The famous James Bond author, Ian Fleming, was an eyewitness reporter for the London Sunday Times in Istanbul during the riot.
The Order of St. Andrew the Apostle is comprised of Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate who have been honored for their outstanding service to The Orthodox Church by having a Patriarchal title, or “offikion,” bestowed upon them by His All Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. Those upon whom this title of the Mother Church has been conferred are known as “Archons of the Great Church of Christ,” and the titles are personally conferred by the Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in America, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios.
The Order of St. Andrew’s fundamental goal and mission is to promote the religious freedom, wellbeing and advancement of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, which is headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey.
